    In our previous post, we talked about how to create a LinkedIn Farewell message, but now we will talk about when to send it.

    Before sending your LinkedIn farewell message, you should do the following:

    Meet with your manager to submit your two-week notice.

      1. Tell them to thank you for having the opportunity to work with them. You never know that you might work with them again later in your career, and you should ensure you leave on good terms with your manager. 
      2. Also, ask for your manager’s contact information and make it clear that you will be available if they ever need help while you are gone.
      3. Create a list of all of your current projects and include hand-off documentation so that your replacement can complete your work.
      4. Ask your manager what they need from you before you leave the company.


    Confirm when it would be appropriate to send a note to your immediate colleagues.

      1. Your manager might want to check in with their manager to share the news that you are leaving and to prepare for possibly backfilling your role. You never know if there are other considerations your manager is taking into account before announcing you are leaving, so it’s best to check in with them first before saying anything to your colleagues.

    Send a draft note goodbye note to your manager for their sign off.

      1. A sincere thank you for the opportunity to work with them.
      2. Plans for where you will be going next.
      3. Your contact information – LinkedIn, Email, phone etc.
      4. If your manager likes your note, then send it to your colleagues.


    Now you are ready to send your LinkedIn farewell message.

      1. Why wait until then? Because a lot can happen in two weeks, the company you are planning to join might rescind your offer or in a weird twist of events, your manager could decide to provide you with a promotion. So it’s best to wait until you start your newb job before sending your LinkedIn farewell message.

    Now how should you ensure you do well at your new job?
